On August 26 2019 Julia decided to to post a story on her twitter account. The post stated that since everyone’s talking about old tweets and Trump allies looking for oppo on journalists, let her tell you a story.
She wrote that on Election Day 2018, she was invited to Steve Bannon’s election night watch party and a very strange and frumpy young man approached her. The young man told her his name, which she now don’t remember. He looked surprised that Julia didn’t know him.
“But I’m the one who tried to get you fired from the Atlantic,” he said.
? I said
He told Julia that he had been paid by a Republican donor
…had a picture, which, to him indicated power) to hunt for old, compromising tweets of Julia. He found an old tweet, from 2010 or 2011 in which she quoted a strange Russian teenager who asked me if there were any real Americans in America “or is everyone a N-word?”
According to Julia post this young man had been paid by said Republican donor to specifically look into Julia old tweets and find something compromising. She wrote that she stood there, rooted to the spot. She had dealt with this kind of thing in Russia, but not in the United States, except the Russians were more slick about it.
“Noting personal,” the young man said as he walked away, but this time he refused to repeat his name.
(I should add that I have apologized for and suffered consequences of this and other bad tweets, and I’m not saying I shouldn’t. But that’s not what we’re talking about here. And there are people, like our President, who suffers zero consequences for his bad tweets.
